Roy Muntz

Roy J. Muntz, 92 of Oakfield, NY, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, January 3, 2024. He was the son of the late Norman and Flora Muntz of Corfu. He was preceded in death by his sisters Eleanore Hazel and Gladys Hartrick, a half brother Ernest Coots,  his daughter Kathy Vandeusen and grandson Jeffrey Muntz. 

Roy is survived by his wife of almost 73 years Evelyn and their children: Janet Kruszelnicki (John), Carol Muntz (Mark Cross), Roy Muntz Jr (Shelly), Ronald Muntz (Debbie), Betty Vandersypen (John), Dennis Muntz (Kelly), Sandra Muntz,  Ricky Muntz (Marina Zarco). Also 30 grandchildren, 50 great grandchildren (we are told two more on the way), 5 great great grandchildren, his sisters Linda Bowman, Dorothy Plowe, Shirley Muntz and many, many nieces and nephews.

Roy was born at home on his parents farm in Corfu, NY on February 27, 1931, and spent much of his life working on them. He worked over 41 years at the US Gypsum. After retirement he stayed active cutting and splitting his own firewood and helping family on their farms. He enjoyed going for drives with Evelyn to eat out or visit family. He kept up with and shared all the latest gossip, if you needed to know something,  you just asked Roy. While he never made it to Florida or laid on a sandy beach, as anyone that visited them knows, it always felt like bikini weather inside with their woodstove going year round.

Family and friends may call from 2 to 4 p.m., Sunday Jan. 7, 2024 at the C. B. Beach & Son Mortuary, Inc, 4 East Main Street, Corfu,  NY. Funeral services will be held at 11 am Monday, Jan. 8, 2024 at the mortuary. Roy will be buried in Evergreen Hill Cemetery, Corfu NY.
